    Thanks

    I teriyaki mine all the time - mix of soy sauce with some splenda. Not spicy but VERY YUMMY. The cooking juices are lovely on top of the veggies too.

    Also, mushroom sauce or creamy cheese sauce. No need for dry, boring chicken :)

    Sainsburys oven bags, insert chicken, butter, spices and water. Seal it (with included tag) and await exciting chicken (comes out like it has been cooked in gravy - that sort of texture/moistness).

    I use squash. I'd suicide myself if all I had was water. Lemon juice is the lowest carb that I've seen, tho orange not far behind. Alot of the others have loads of carbs in - stick to no added sugar and you should be OK! Labels are a wealth of info on most. :)

    Tarragon Chicken
    · 2 Chicken Breasts
    · Bunch of Tarragon
    · Half a small pot of double cream
    · Butter
    · Groundnut oil
    · Half a lemon

    Melt the butter with a dash of groundnut oil, add chicken and tarragon until cooked. Add cream, mix in until a sauce, then lemon juice and season.

    Really good but i'd go easy on the lemon juice!

    2 pints of water is not nearly enough should be 5 pints plus!! Watch out for citric acid in squashes they stall some people. x

    I used to hate chicken today, as it's just so boring and mostly bland. I now boil chicken breasts with a stock cube or two and i love it. It's so moist and the very subtle taste of stock is lush. I also fry some mushrooms and add philly and all melted i've got a delish mushroom sauce. I eat that with nearly all meat, not so good with lamb strangely.
